VIKING exchange agreements


While servicing or replacing life-saving equipment are both viable solutions VIKING also offers a third and very advantageous alternative - the VIKING Exchange Agreement!

Mandatory servicing has never been more convenient

Handled under our Shipowner and Offshore Safety Agreements, this low-entry-barrier concept is available for liferafts and immersion suits, allowing owners to swap equipment bound for periodical servicing with freshly serviced, gear and valid certificates, directly at pier or warehouse - for a fixed annual fee per item. With a standard turnaround time of 1‐2 hours, short port stays are no problem.

A global solution to suit your business

With a VIKING Exchange Agreement, you are always sure to have safe and fully compliant equipment on-board, with no need to worry about any of the traditional servicing hassles. Choose freely from our 85 convenient exchange ports worldwide, with absolutely no hidden and fluctuating costs. No matter where your exchange is conducted, the fee stays the same. VIKING will even handle notification, scheduling and invoicing of your exchange for when the vessel is in port. Our dedicated and reliable planners keep track of all the details and customers only need a single point of contact, so there is no need to spend time on contacting overseas vendors.

The world’s largest pool of cutting-edge equipment

In support of our exchange agreement, we maintain the world’s largest pool of approved, high‐quality liferafts. When it comes to immersion suits, agreements can include the popular SOLAS approved immersion suits PS2014 (Neoprene) and the top-of-the-line PS5006 (PU coated Nylon).
